Good grab.

I was concerned that someone would find the horseshoe and throw it down over the hill into the river.
It wasn't really on my normal route (woodbridge to Dullas) but it only added 20 minutes and it was great riding weather so how could I pass it up! I would have gone yesterday afternoon but I had already enjoyed a cold one when I logged on and saw the location, I stop there lots when riding the GW Parkway. nice place to catch sunrises...

Now it's moving!

With the great weather forecast for the next few days, I anticipate a lot of action this weekend. I think we should make a decision about the role of the cache in all of this. Despite my concerns expressed yesterday, I'm ok with the possession of the cache determining who officially got the grab and thus sets the next tag. According to HburgNinja, this approach appears to work for the Valley ToR.

I think if we go this route, if you show up to make a grab but the cache is missing, take your photos anyway in case the cache was picked up by a citizen or you just didn't find it. That way, if no one ends up with it later, you can post your grab photos and the game will continue.

Perhaps I'm over-analyzing this. (If you ask my wife, she'll tell you this isn't the first time. )

What do you guys think?

The cache thing is super easy but just requires some basic ground rules at first. As Skippii pointed out recently, we(Valley ToR) probably have the most rules of any ToR but it never gets in the way of our fun (hell I never really think about them its so second nature now)

Have a great weekend ya'll

BBooker explained it perfectly. If you show up and there isn't a cache, take a pic any way. You never know if someone not playing the game picked it up.
I'm heading to the valley this weekend for a little riding and camping. Details are here is anyone is interested:

MojaveGS -

Of course we care about your opinion! You're a major participant in this game!

And I agree, Jeff, post the next one so we have a destination for getting out today. In fact, cough, cough, I'm starting to feel a little ill. I may have to leave the office early today.

I'm trying for an early out today, the beast is threatening to just leave on her own,,,we shall see, only a hundred more servers to ptach.... (or I could push the big red button in the server room,"gee, no power, guess I should just go home!" ) but no later than 5 I'll have the tag stashed and posted.

The Race for the Bacon

OK, almost 2 o’clock and the wolves ain’t howling yet…

So where Did I put that damn shoe????

Oh, Yeah..
OK so bacon won out over bridges (this time)
Here are the clues, contained in the below little ditty.. words may not be in the right order but there is enough to figure out where its at with a little effort...


Bacon Racing’? Who’da Thunk!
Conceived no doubt by some Clifton drunk!
But yes, indeed, I kid you knot;
‘Tis eight miles past, in a Quiet spot.

Tread softly please as forth you see(k)
The shoe of the horse I placed for Thee.
There’s a Pile of Stones quite evident;
From a time when such shoes
Were quite prevalent!

A man named Davis once had a Ford
But he traded it for a piece of Road!
Next to said pile, just to the right
It lies in wait and in plain sight.








And they’re off! The Race for the Bacon has begun!

Jeff

If you live in that big white house across the street from there then I want to be your friend.

Grabbed!

Nothing like leaving work early and riding down to Clifton (and beyond)!



Thanks for the awesome destination Jeff!

I have the shoe.

Next Tag

Unfortunately, I ran out of time to make it to the next Tag. I know where it's gonna be though. I will have the picture up by 9:00 Sat morning. In the mean time, you can ponder these clues:

1) Fairfax County
2) It's next to the River that separates the Old Dominion from the Free State.
3) It's next to a Bend in the river where there's a park.
4) While you're in the area, be sure to sample these roads: Beach Mill, Seneca, Georgetown Pike. You won't be disappointed.
